Whoa. One of the greatest soul divas OF ALL TIME is coming to Little Rock next month. Christ Church Little Rock is hosting Mavis Staples in concert at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11. Tickets, which range from $20 to $35, go on sale Sunday, Sept. 22 Monday, Sept. 23. 



The Staples Singer great has hardly slipped into the nostalgia circuit in her golden years. In June, she put out "One True Vine," her second collaboration with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy (the first won a Grammy). Both find her mostly interpreting other people's songs. Check out her cover of Funkadelic's "Can You Get to That" and footage from The Staple Singers at Wattstax doing "Respect Yourself" on the jump.
